January 3, 2011

[Updated] At approximately 2:30pm this afternoon [Jan 3] there was an accident on Harrington Sound Road, just west of Trinity Church Road junction. The roof of the car has sustained damage, and a bystander said the car ‘overturned’ at one point during the accident.

Bernews unofficially understands the car occupant[s] may have left the scene. We will update with official Police information as able. For previous posts with photos of unusual accident scenes click here.

Update: Thanks to Sarai Hines, we have added photos of the car actually ‘flipped over’ as it was immediately after the accident, prior to being moved. Also, the Police confirm the driver left the scene, and said his injuries are “unknown.”

    i was like 4 cars behind this!! smh, had to turn around and go allllllllll the way back around just to get to bailey’s bay :| and your write up said the person fled the scene? i saw a random person standing there with an umbrella up… thats all, because someone further up said “a car just flipped over and you can’t get by” as they turned around in their vehicle

    • Reported? says:

      Ryan…I trust you contacted the police and told them everything you know about the accident. Every bit of information helps.

    Where are the airbags. Don’t new cars or newer cars in Bermuda come equipped with airbags?

  4. Terry says:

    Poor Ryan. My heart bleeds for you. So you spent no time on scene and turned around.. Good on you.

    Damn people smashing cars and cycles and inturupting our pasage. Shame.

    I have it from an unreliable sauce that it was Julia Andrews from Tucker Town with the umbrella.

    Ross Perot was heard singing from the 19th Hole at Mid Ocean…the Hilss are alive with the sound of crashes………………………

  5. Terry says:

    Fergie…….They don’t have air bags for frontal tire/side.

    Hell….might as well drive a ballooon………………….That way it would’nt hinder your…………………….

  6. Call as it is says:

  9. Curious says:

    How do you flip a car at 35 kph?

    • Cherie says:

      That’s a very good question. I wondered the same thing. There is no way it’s possible to have THIS much damage and to flip a vehicle doing 35 kph unless you are rolling down an embankment.

  10. Triangle Drifter says:

    First step, check the drivers cell phone records.

    Makes the indie 500 look like a roman chariot race now
